NASCAR At Darlington Raceway 2012 Results: Kasey Kahne Gets 5th Straight Top-10 Finish, Jimmie Johnson Wins

The Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway took place under the lights on Saturday night. The 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race featured two Washingtonians that finished strong.

Kasey Kahne has really turned things around after a horrible string of wrecks to begin his 2012. Kahne finished Saturday's race in eighth place, which is his fifth straight top-10 finish and nets him some valuable points in the standings.

Greg Biffle did not fare quite so well. Despite holding the pole at the beginning of the race and leading for quite some time at the outset, Biffle began trailing late in the race and finished 12th, which is far from bad but likely disappointing for Biffle and his team.

Jimmie Johnson picked up his first win of the season by finishing ahead of Denny Hamlin and Tony Stewart.
